The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

Biden stumbles once again



Joe Biden goes off-topic when asked about what would he do to address slavery in the past with a rambling, stuttering reply about showing poor people how to raise their children.

It's clear as hell to me that this recent debate performance in Houston indicates that Biden's day in the sun has passed him by.  But sadly the DNC (Democratic National Committee), which is still run by the Clinton political corporate syndicate, has been insisting that Biden be the next presidential nominee for their party.

Why?  Because the corporations are comfortable that they control Biden even if he has trouble finishing a thought.

During the last election campaign the 'super delegates' were given the power to override the popular will of the party which favored Bernie Sanders.  Much complaint and criticism ensued.  So the party decided that in 2020 the super delegates would not be involved in the first round of voting at the Democratic party convention.

But with so many candidates running in the Democratic party primaries it is highly likely that in the first round at the convention no one candidate will gain enough votes to get the nomination.  That means the convention will go to a second and possibly third round and in that case the corporate-owned super delegates will be back in play.

This means the Democrats are still likely to choose an eventual candidate for 2020 that will be either Biden or someone else who is absolutely in the bulging pockets of the corporate elites (Corry Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O'Rourke or even Elizabeth Warren who is owned by the Raytheon Corporation in Massachusetts).

There is no room in the Democratic party for real progressive ideas and policies.  The party bosses will cheat and pull any necessary shenanigans to ensure they cut the heart out of progressive forces leaving them just like in 2016 - support the corporate candidate Hillary Clinton or leave the party.
